Please sign and share this petition in an effort to punish the owner of the dogs who attacked an elderly woman's pet dog in West Chicago, Illinois and harming her as well. What is appalling is that these same dogs killed another pet dog in the same manner just last year without repercussions! If this guy is not held accountable for ill care of his animals, the next tragedy will be a child or other humans!

Ms. Bonnie Price is an 83-year old lady who just wanted to take her precious dog, Toto for a walk; the last walk of the poor dog's life. As she was walking with her little dog, an 8-year old Yorkie, two pit bulls approached and attacked Toto while knocking down his owner. Ms. Price tried to save her pet from the vicious attack and got bit as a result. She said "he would not let go, I was screaming for help and I was trying to get my hand in there." The dogs bit Ms. Price on the legs and her hand. "He came to me when I was ill, he was a buddy all the time, we were together all the time, doing everything together," Price said about Toto.        

The owner of the dogs was nowhere to be found but a neighbor came to help her as she was screaming. "I ran into this other house's garage and grabbed a shovel and started hitting the dogs in the head - maybe sounds inhumane - but they were mauling her and she was screaming," said Chris Dubos, a witness. Another neighbor, Laura Ekstrom who was also on the scene stated that these same dogs attacked and killed Macy, her 12-year-old Papillon-poodle mix."It's heartbreaking, she was with us 12 years, but it makes me angry, this did not have to happen," Ekstrom said.

The owner of these dogs needs to be held accountable for the actions of his animals. His dogs are obviously not well trained and cared for; kept restrained in their own home and property. Are the authorities and this guy waiting until these dogs kill a child or seriously harm a human. They killed once before and there were no repercussions.

West Chicago Law Enforcement - Seriously punish the owner of these abusive, unruly dogs and make him responsible. It is absurd that such an incident just happened to another dog in the neighborhood just last year and nothing happened to stop the reoccurrence! Please don't wait until a child or other human is the next victim before you remove these dogs from the area permanently and severely punish the owner for his neglect with these animals. People should not live in fear because of the irresponsibility of a pet owner.
